Search and Rescue Team Meets on Saturday
We will have a roadside search in conjunction with the US Forestry Service
on Bloxham Cutoff Saturday May 20th from 9AM to 12PM. We hope to cover 5
miles of roadway on both sides of the road. That would put us half way to
SR20 from Crawfordville Road.
People are needed to walk on a grid line up to 100 feet off the roadside
into woods and wetlands. No expereience is necessary however, it is
required that all searchers be as self sufficient as possible. This
includes having fluids to drink (sodas are not a good
option since they dehydrate your cells), insect repellant with DEET,
boots and thick socks, sunscreen, long pants, long sleeves are
preferred, walking stick, and plenty of patience.
Anyone interested in participating is welcome to join us. For more
information, you may reach someone at either PETESARPUP@AOL.com or
Thank you in advance for your ACTIVE support.

with this directive.
